The second of the fourth of July recipes that annoyed me. This one for a minor reason, the recipe said it would make two loaves, it most certainly does not. So, I ended up with two loaves about 2 inches high. Had I done one loaf, it would have been perfection.
I have seriously slacked when it comes to baking this Halloween season. But fear not, I celebrate all things pumpkin all the way until Thanksgiving.
I recently joined a baking group that meets once a year in December and bakes and decorates a mass amount of cookies. I’m actually pretty nervous about it as these people have been doing this for 20 years and I’ve only been baking about a year and half now. I’m convinced that my cookies will fail in some manner but I’m sure I’ll also learn approximately one million things from these people.
Anywho, this recipe was quite tasty. I don’t know that the buttermilk actually made much of a difference compared to any other pumpkin bread recipe but I needed to use it up and this recipe fit the bill.
The great thing about being really into baking is when your house is fully stocked with all the supplies necessary and you can just pick up one item to make something fabulous. In this case, my grocery store had raspberries on sale, 2 for $1. How could I resist? Raspberries are amazing! I was able to double the recipe and make two great loaves for $1.
All hail springtime! Because that means the good berries are back.
Making a crumble was an interesting experience and actually took making two batches to get it right.
Note to self (and anyone reading this) spend the money on good cooking spray. I mean, I only bought it because it was all that was available that day but I almost lost the bread because the bottom was still stuck.
Since getting my fancy new stand mixer for Christmas, I have been absolutely lazy about baking. I’m pretty sure my husband is going to strangle me sometime soon. He spent a lot of money on the damn thing. I fully intend to use it a LOT, I’ve just been distracted by so many things. So many stupid things.
This bread was super tasty. You cannot go wrong mixing chocolate and cinnamon.
